Selective Amnesia There was a point to this. But I forgot.


In which Chandrachoodan pulls the plug on Selective Amnesia

Non-regular readers, supporters of IIPM, horny twits searching for Silk Smitha, pervs looking for pictures of drunk women in hotel, you will have one less blog to search for. Thank you for making my life here interesting. Or not.
So, shoo! Off with you, and scat.

Have they gone? You sure? Check under the table? Really, really gone?
Good! You can’t be careful enough these days, damn passersby looking on like this is a damn freakshow, or even a nudist beach.

Have they really gone? Sure? Good. Now what was I talking about? Oh yeah! Chandrachoodan pulls the plug on Selective Amnesia.
The Selective Amnesia you and I know will die its deserved death.

2001, the year I first started out as a wet behind the ears copywriter, I put up a page on tripod with pieces of my writings, some essays that have won me prizes in school, hoping to impress Creative Directors enough to give me an internship. That obsession with tripod continued well into 2003, writing a new story every second day, with a little e-mail script for feedback from random strangers.
Little did I know in 2001 that the very thing was soon to be called Blogging and give me my first shot at celebrity hood. Stupid me. I should have left well alone.

2003, August 28. Selective Amnesia was born, after three months of commenting on various “mainstream” blogs. SelAm was an obsession. It still is. Unfortunately for me.

2004, June 7. I moved from Blog City to this very domain, with a load of help, initially from Kingsley and then from Madman. Damn you guys. You should have refused to help me, saving me from this obsession.

Anyway, as I was saying, 2003 was the year I was cursed.
I, who hated habits, chose to form a lasting one.
I, who wasn’t addicted to anything, allowed myself one vice.
I, not bound by anything, willingly tied myself down to a page on the web.

Time’s come to cut the bonds that tie me. I’ve grown, learnt that I am more than just my words. I am more than my childish attempt to be popular.

I am Chandrachoodan. This is just a website. it will be no more what it is. I will be.

  1. I am a could-have-been-passerby(oh,dont shoo off passersby/non-reg readers -after all,thats a regular reader’s first stage);but the fact that I finished reading the entire blog a few moments ago doesnt encourage the description. Anyways,CG,since the plug is intact, best wishes to convert SelAm into SelSelAm – the next level,I mean.

  2. Just the day I come here via Madman (& a looong detour thru his restaurant!), I read this! C’mon you CAN’T do this! Given that not a month has passed by without your posts, guess its still not too late and the plug is in place!

  3. Yov! Can I lure you back into blogging?

  4. hey machi! Thanks for the special mention and all..*sniff sniff* (I got a cold..nothing more :p)

    And enna AWOL?? I am very much alive here…taking good care of your bro! ๐Ÿ™‚ But too bad you selectively forgot where I am now and didnt let me know he was heading here!

  5. Boy, am I late here or what? Jesus, you’re kidding me with this plug pulling bit, aint you? Just today, I was letting the world know you’ve been missed in blogger meets and then, I read this! Come on back, CC .& thats an ORDER! Ok, just kidding but I will be the first to say
    ” Welcome back! ” You’ll see….. ๐Ÿ™

  6. I know I am late here. But for me, your blog has a lot of memories. SelAm is the first blog I ever commented on, during the blog-city days though. You would be sorely missed CC

  7. am sure you are gonna come back with some stupid excuse.. better start preparing a nicer one.

  20. Is your Amnesia over? Have you recovered fully?
    I hope that this post is similar to Kiruba’s prank.

  21. I remember you talking about moving to a domain where you wanted to display your entire portfolio. So, am I right in assuming the death of is the birth of ?

  22. So this is the end of the road for the blog? Methinks you’ll be back. BTW are you chickening out on ‘The Chicken Rules’ too? ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. LOL, i think ur popularity will get the better of u soon ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Just suspend it, can you?

  25. whats wrong?

  26. Chandra, if this is a temporary blogger block, I’ll let that pass, but your site has enough clout to really be useful in many ways if only you thought of ways and means of keeping the flame alive. Hope you heed the call ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Tell me you are joking.

  28. CCG I shall miss SelAm. And I hope I was included in the list of people that you were shooing away in the top. Fingers crossed you change your mind sometime soon
